Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Set in Nevada in the 1860's, Bonanza chronicled the adventures of the Cartwright family who owned a large ranch called The Ponderosa. Ben Cartwright and his three sons, Adam, Hoss, and Joe fought for what was just and decent in a time where lawlessness was common.

The widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright had three sons, each by a different wife: the oldest was the urbane architect Adam Cartwright, who built the ranch house. The second was the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his nickname "Hoss." And the youngest was the hotheaded and impetuous Joseph or "Little Joe." They all lived and worked on The Ponderosa. Nearby Virginia City helped populate the episodes with guest starring characters from all over America.

Broadcast between September 1959 and January 1973. Filmed by the National Broadcasting Company at Paramount Studios.

Subject: Another good episode
A 16-year old boy arrives in Virginia City from Boston, almost 3000 miles away, only to find that his father was recently gunned down by Ben Cartwright.

Naturally, the shooting was correct and proper and purely an act of self-defence as the boy's dead father was nothing but an out-of-control drunken rogue.

Ben tries to do the right thing by putting the vengeful and upset boy back on the right track. This is quite brave as the boy repeatedly tries to kill the Cartwright patriarch at every opportunity in order to exact the revenge he feels is necessary.

Enjoyable episode, but me for it ends a little bit too early. Sure, the boy is eventually convinced more or less that his dead dad was no good and was quite rightly shot down. Still if I was Ben Cartwright, I'm not sure I'd ever completely trust the boy again. After all, he could still harbour some resentment. I would have much rather the episode ended with the boy saying "You know what Mr Cartwright, I understand now that you had absolutely no choice other than to kill my father. I therefore give you my word that I will never try to kill you again." But I guess, this was all somehow implied. :D

A youngish Lee Van Cleef shows up as a gun for hire. Listen closely to the man tearing up the shop in the opening teaser. It's Allan Lane, the voice of Mr. Ed the talking horse.

Subject: Trivia
Normally I don't do westerns but this episode of Bonanza features actors Jan Sterling and Ray Teal. They both worked together in Billy Wilder's 1951 classic Ace in the Hole. She was a great underrated actress.
